Halal McDonalds Style Burgers (updated 2021)


Up until recently, If you wanted to have the taste of a Halal McDonald’s you would have to travel to a Muslim country like Egypt, Turkey or UAE to fulfil that craving. I remember when I went to Dubai I brought back 5 cheeseburgers for my family and everyone was so happy. It’s strange how these little £1 burgers can bring so much joy.

Anyway, there’s no longer any more reason to travel 1000 miles because there’s been an explosion of Halal Burger Joints that offer burgers that tastes identical to a McDonald’s cheeseburger or Big Mac.

Here’s a list of places where you can find halal McDonald’s like burgers in no particular order.

The original and first restaurant in London to introduce Halal McDonald’s style burgers. I still remember when I first blogged about this place, the hype was crazy, do crazy that Bims had to shut down for 2 weeks to re-fit their kitchen to cope with demand!

CHICO’S Flame Grilled Chicken

From one of the owners of Fat Boyz comes Chicos (a restaurant that my wife named!). Although a little more expensive than other places that do the same McDonalds burgers

Address349-351 Barking Rd, East Ham, London E6 1LA

Fat Cafe

The cafe has just introduced a range of McDonald’s style burgers to their new Menu. Tastes just like a proper McDonald’s burger!

Munch Box

Although the burgers here are not 100% the same as a McDonald’s burger they are very close and make it their own style, rather than imitating McDonald’s.

1 Priory Rd, East Ham, London E6 1DR

Mak Burgers

I’ve not been here but thought I’d give some love to South London. They look similar to McDonald’s burgers and I heard they taste the same!

Five Bros

Another new spot. Not been to this one either.

165 Globe Road, Bethnal Green, London E2 0LJ
